Thinking about this more, I think it would just confuse most users...
why .T and not .H; then you have to start explaining the underlying
implementation detail.  For users who already understand the
implementation detail, finding .T.conj() would not be too hard.

I am willing to write up a NEP if there's any interest.  The plan
would be to remove the Matrix class from numpy over two or three
releases, and publish it as a separate package on PyPi.
